I am writing with information about our plans for in person worship at the Cathedral. Please know that we look forward to welcoming those who desire to be present for in person worship and we will be following protocols to make that a positive and safe experience. Here are some important things for you to know.
1.) Philippians 2:4 reminds us that we “do not merely look out for our own personal interests, but also for the interest of others.” The Covid-19 virus is still among us and whether you are here for worship or out living life, please practice safety measures not only for your own safety, but maybe particularly out of concern for other’s safety. Wear a mask in public, practice social distancing, wash your hands often!
2.) Given the continuously changing circumstances regarding the spread of Covid, please know that we will be establishing a worship schedule on a monthly basis. Within that monthly schedule, be vigilant, as circumstance may dictate the change and or cancellation of worship opportunities at any time. We will and must continuously adapt to our circumstances.
3.) In-person worship will begin the first Sunday in July. Worship will take place at 8:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m., and 12:30 p.m. (Spanish language) and at 9:00 a.m. in Sayre Hall. (321 Contact service) Those desiring to worship in person must follow the protocols created for that experience. In person gatherings are limited to 25 persons.
4.) If desiring to worship “in-person” you MUST pre-register (click here)
or call Tracy in the office at 610-865-0727 by Noon the Friday before the Sunday services you wish to attend. Registrations are on a “first come” basis. You will receive confirmation of your registration.
5.) All are welcome of course, but some may be in health official designated “risk categories”. If you deem yourself in that category you may want to continue participating virtually. Services will continue to be virtual.
Thank you for your patience, and for your faithfulness to our mission. As things progress we may increase the number of participants but will not do that until we feel secure in our processes and with a close eye on public health developments. We also expect that we will be adapting our worship schedule as we go. In the meantime, keep being the Church! Our mission continues. You have been so faithful. I look forward to seeing you, virtually and in person.
Blessings and peace,
The Very Rev. Anthony R. Pompa
Dean and Rector
